Scene 2021.1.0 - VR window only shows grey

Post by ScottKarlins »

Hoping someone can assist with this issue:

Since updating to 2021 version of Scene, I can no longer get a preview of what the HMD is seeing. The VR window in Scene 2021.1.0 is only showing grey. The view in the HMD is fine, and works perfect.

I am on the latest version of Scene as of today. Latest Steam and SteamVR as well. Using a Vive HMD

Thanks in advance!

Hello Scott,

Thank you for reporting this. This will be fixed in the next release. Meanwhile, a workaround you may use is the SteamVRs VRView.(See image).

Best regards,
Ugurcan
